they're talking about. >> ironically president obama, a constitutional scholar and scalia are in the same place on this issue. yes, you have the right, but not without responsibilities. okay. dr. peterson -- >> yes. >> i don't know if it gets more bizarre than this. i feel like every day there's a new bizarre from rush limbaugh. he has taken a very strange twist in his defense of gun enthusiasts. he's now claiming that they are the martin luther kings in this civil rights fight. >> if a lot of african-americans back in the '60s had guns and the legal right to use them for self-defense, do you think they would have needed selma? if john lewis had had a gun, would he have been beat upside the head on the bridge? >> i have to tell you -- >> karen, listen, this is disgusting. first of all, it's not original -- >> rush is now -- it sounds like he's trying to be a member of the black panthers. this is ridiculous. >> well, there's that irony as well. but it's not original. he's taking it from the comments from the other right wing nut job who was talking about if slaves had guns.
, the new look of michele obama. talking about the new book that pays homage to the first lady. >>> the buildup to monday's presidential inauguration is in full swing this friday afternoon, perhaps nowhere more so than here at the d.c. convention center. i'm bob barnard. i'll tell you why when i take you on a behind-of-the-scenes behind-the-scenes tour.  >>> the first inaugural event kick off tomorrow in communities all across the country and on the national mall devoted to national service. more on the last-minute work being done for what's in store. >> reporter: the d.c. convention center is hosting all three inaugural events. beside the swearing in ceremony and the parade, as you might imagine, this place is buzzing right now. there were six inaugural balls. the three this time around or the children's inaugural, saturdays day night in this cavernous hall and then monday night, the inaugural ball and the commander in chief ball in this room, mostly enlisted members and their families. >> it's very important to the first and second families because it is their way of
. the other end of it from a policy standpoint is president obama talking about more money for psychiatric services for specifically young people to try to figure out an early age prone to violent behavior. i guess my two questions about that, i wonder, first of all, is this going to necessitate a change in the law about doctor/patient confidentiality? if a red flag, you know, is raised, are we going to need to change the law so the doctor is able to alert the authorities and act on the information? flip side of that is if that's the case and the doctor's empowered to do that, do you think that might cause young people to clam up and not be as forthcoming as we need them to be? >> great questions, steve. i think the answer to the first thing is, yes. you're seeing a proposal in colorado not getting enough attention on the mental health side and proposed a change in the legal standard where now doctors who previously were supposed to inform the authorities if there was some imminent risk to, you know, of harm to others, now will have a slightly, you know, a less stringent standard of substa
today, i have forgotten who it was, that president obama talked today as if he just won an election. and guess what? this issue was on the table. and the american people decided no, they don't believe, we don't believe as a people that all government is useless. we expect a lot of things of government. and i actually thought that little segment you showed from frank luntz is very revealing, because republicans for years have thought that saying the word "small government" was the popular way to go. and the fact that frank luntz, their favorite language maven is telling them they shouldn't use small government anymore i think tells us a lot about the shift in public dialogue in the fact that the american people are saying we don't want this way of talking about government anymore. >> ruth conniff, speaker boehner is at the mercy of the extremists in his own party who seem willing to throw the country into chaos. do you believe, or do you think that boehner would put his leadership position at risk to prevent this? i mean, when i say leadership, we're to the point where they actually
to the inauguration, can president obama hope for a new term. let's talk with debbie wassermann schultz. >> good morning. thanks for having me. >> congresswoman, let me ask you. we heard from theepublicans on extending the debt ceiling for at least a three-month period. is this any signs of hope in terms of cooperation or more maneuvering? >> i think this unfortunately more a sign that republicans realize it was horribly damaging to them to continue to jeopardize the full faith and credit of the united states. now, it still does that because they are really perpetrating colossal uncertainty by proposing only to extend the debt ceiling increase by three months. i mean in a fragile recovery like the one we have we need to have certainty, we need to pay our bills, and we need to send president obama a clean debt ceiling increase. >> you also will need to have a budget in place in order to come to that debt ceiling debate as the republicans have laid it out at this point and you're also going to be dealing with the deficit and all of the other issues. so are you basically say
that a promise broken. where obama talked a big game about transparency, fulfilled a lot of transparency, don't get me wrong, but on something like that, the way washington works, those negotiations are not on c- span, they are in a room at the white house where deals are cut. it is sausage being made. that promise was not fulfilled, so that one earned a broken. host: what about his broader pledges on health care? guest: health care was an area where he had a fair amount of success. he kept 47% of the health-care promises. many of those were tucked inside the health care law, which of course passed in the first two years of his presidency when democrats controlled the house. so health care was an area where he had some of his biggest success. from caffeyhear from michigan on our democrats line. caller: good morning. i think the president has kept most of his promises. everyone he could possibly keep. i mean, the republicans have gone after him like nothing. but during the presidential election, you heard him say many times -- the republicans say -- "facts don't matter." they just do not care

founders believe why and hear barack obama is talking about why and not x, that isn't the stick. that's saying somebody is entering a long historical conversation. when you see the founding fathers believed x and barack obama believes why it, that becomes the stick. so i think that at a very fundamental level, kind of discourse that i am responding to can't draw that distinction between the founders believe and most founders believed or many founders or some founders believed because of that historical the incoherent unity of opinion as fundamental to the way the discourse is being used. >> host: is there any hope for propaganda as you described them to have a meaningful constructive conversation about the founding father? >> guest: that is at odds with what most are talking to. >> host: let me ask about the founding fathers apart from what they have said about them. this is a special group of people and maybe they've been treated wrong by the people to talk about in your book but if this is a group of people were the evin ellen 20 talf. >> guest: i do think so. i think these are very
believed x, some founders believed y, and here barack obama is talking about y and not x. that's not a stick. that's just saying that something is entering a long historical conversation. when you say the founding fathers believed x and barack obama believes y, that becomes the stick. so, i think that at a very fundamental level, the kind of discourse i'm responding to can't draw that distinction between the founders believed and most founders believed, because -- or many founders, or some founders believed, because that historically incoherent unanimity of opinion is fundamental to the way the discourse is being used. >> host: is there any hope for prop begannists to have a meaningful, constructive conversation about the founding fathers? >> i think that is at odd with what most propagandaist are trying to do. >> host: let me ask you about the founding fathers, aside -- was this a special group of people? maybe they've been treated wrong by the people you talk about in your book but is this a group of people worthy of special attention even now in 2012? >> guest: i think so. t
when senator barack obama was preparing for his first inauguration. >> we are talking about the national day of service, and today the first family spent their time volunteering along with countless others. the president started this to honor the legacy of dr. martin luther king? >> that is right, and this is the kickoff of the inauguration weekend. this day of service sets a different tone. before he is sworn in, president obama is shipping in. today, the first family picked up their paint brushes and volunteered in northeast, d.c. >> this is what america's about. this is what we celebrate. >> they started the day of service at their first inauguration, a call for people to volunteer on this specific day. vice-president joe biden spent today in southeast at the d.c. armory, filling care packages for troops. on the national mall, a service summit, with celebrities like eva longoria and chelsea clinton. >> it is inspiring to see all of these people out here. everybody is here to give back. >> and people did not even have to wait. they can participate on service projects on si
was a fashionista and you're talking about dolly madison. how do you compare michelle obama to her most recent predecessors, laura bush, and secretary of state hillary clinton? >> i think that every first lady has to define the role for herself. so there are things that are available to her. she has access, she has chances to exert power. the office of first lady has a power just in showing up. and i think each of our first ladies that in our living memory have exercised that power very well. i know that mrs. laura bush was an incredibly powerful and effective first lady. but she did it rather quietly and a more mibehind the scenes kind of way. in fact, i would say her career after first lady hood is an example for all first ladies. and, of course, mrs. clinton was a stepping stone to even more power. so i think each woman defines it for herself. and i think mrs. obama has been a good example of that. i'm curious to see what she is going to do in four years. >> we all are. thank you, kathryn. we appreciate it. and you can't talk presidential inauguration without some historical context. so nex

"the washington post" suggested yesterday that you present an obstacle to the passage of gun- control legislation. obviously, you do in a sense. but i am wondering if sort of standard -- the standard practice in congress should yield to what many perceive to be an extremely urgent situation. >> i think it is an urgent situation. that is why the first hearings held by anybody, house or senate, will be by me and my committee in that. i wasn't quite sure who they were talking about when they wrote the article, but i will strongly defend the press to write and print what they want, accurate or otherwise. but the fact is -- and i am not suggesting whether this was accurate or not -- but i will point out that i have a track record of getting legislation passed. some will say that nothi

sailors coming anytime soon. but we have to move on to the story that everybody is talking about. president obama signing 23 separate executive actions on gun violence today. and those actions could have a huge impact on the firearms industry. among other things, the president called for mandatory background checks for all gun sales and a ban on military assault style weapons and high-capacity magazines. which would make the weapon on the top legal and the weapon on the bottom illegal. even though they are essentially the same gun that fires the same ammunition. this topic is obviously controversial and we will explore every option of it with the money power panel. the owner of a gun range in louisville, kansas, and owner of young democrats of america. and a gun enthusiast from new jersey who uses the very type of firearms caught in the midst of this firearms debate. i will start with you, emily. a series of statistics in reference to what the president said in the press conference. conference. he said the executive orders that his proposals are designed to lower gun violence in

for watching us tonight. the culture goes worldwide that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. if you have been watching the memo i have been reporting that america is moving to the left very quickly. president obama's election has emboldened many liberals and funding taxpayer abortion, legalized narcotics and gay marriage. overseas the same thing is going on as the left is surging. in rome on sunday a group of gay activists stripped off their searches revealing the words in gay we trust. the pope was in the middle of a public prayer as the protesters tried to shout him down. >> [shouting] >> go with a message to pope to shut up his mouth and not to give his ad vices to those people who decide to legalize gay marriage. >> bill: italian police carried the protesters away but chances are nothing much will happen to them. in france the new socialist president has vowed to enact gay marriage. that has angered some french citizens including the sizeable muslim nation. so also last sunday they took to the streets saying they want traditional marriage to be upheld in france. >> whene

talking about how president obama has successfully been neutering republican members of the house. again, from your insiders' perspective, is that you guys talk about in secret meetings? how to neuter those on the right? >> look, i don't think it's possible to neuter the right. so i don't think that's the goal. look, i will say because i want to touch on something you were just talking about. in that this is not -- if i were advising the republicans, i would say this is not about tactics or poll tested talking points. this is about what is your agenda? do you support equal pay for women? do you support comprehensive immigration reform? so it's -- i think within the democratic party, it's hard to understand why they keep having meetings about their tactics when really they need to take a look at how they're not identifying with or relating to the demographics of the country. >> hey, thomas, can i say real quick to jen on that point. you're absolutely right. and if you disagree with the things that jen just outlined there as is part of the republican talking point if you will, tell us why,

an amount of uncertainty, if you will. just today president obama was talking about what could happen if congress doesn't agree to let the government essentially pay its bills. let's listen. >> america cannot afford another debate with this congress about whether or not they should pay the bills they've already racked up. if congressional republicans refused to pay america's bills on time, social security checks and veterans benefits will be delayed. >> so the truth is the president and the congress actually have to agree on all of this to end up getting a deal. but the question for you, suze, is what are americans supposed to do during a time of uncertainty? for example, if you're thinking about making a big purchase, should you do it now or wait till the president and the congress figures it out? >> the time has come, in my opinion that americans realize that their future cannot be in the hands of politicians. that their financial future has to be held tightly right within their own grips. and if they don't have the money to buy something outright, if they have to put it on a credit
